Lord, I live this day for you

Funny, in church yesterday, the topic was on contentment and godliness. And of course, when one speaks of contentment and godliness, materialism and money is not far behind. I Timothy 6:6-10 (For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing (the basics), we will be content with that. … For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs).

Not sure I am in total agreement that we leave with nothing. I believe that when we leave this world, as believers of Christ, that we leave/transition from this world to eternity. We leave with great gain knowing that we will soon be with the other saints.

There’s also another scripture that states that God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9: 6-7). What I do know is this. Money is to be earned; money is to be spent. Wisdom prevails if one considers wise purchases when buying the basics in order to have money left over to help your fellow man. I challenge everyone to consider the following statement – Lord, I Live This Day For You – and see if their life, spending habits, and contentment will not be affected. In fact, if you can do this for one month, half a year or for a year, write to us and let us know how your life has changed.
